Trucktoberfest crashes into West Sacramento

September 24, 2012 by  

West Sacramento will celebrate its 25th anniversary with Trucktoberfest, a street food festival for the whole family this weekend.

As many as 25 Bay area and Sacramento food trucks will be on hand to help with the celebration, including Chairman Bao, We Sushi, El Porteno Empanadas, Curry Up Now, and Sweet and Mellow. Live music will be provided by Riff, Raff, a high voltage tribute to AC/DC, and Four Barrel.

Paul Somerhausen of SactoMoFo said:

“We’ll have a wide variety of beer offerings, and it’s going to be right on the river.”

For the 21 and over crowd, dozens of local wines and craft brews will be available for tasting. No outside alcohol or food will be allowed in. Covered parking is $7 with proceeds benefiting the West Sacramento Scholarship fund.

Chairman Bao’s food is inspired by the street food of Asia and is based in San Francisco, while Sweet and Mellow is a coffee house on wheels and features local fresh baked goods and coffee from local independent roasters. Indian street food, as well as Indian food from around the world, can be found from Curry Up Now.

Visitors are encouraged to bring blankets, low back chairs, sunblock, and sunglasses. Admission is free and the event is sponsored by Whole Foods and West Sacramento parks and recreation. River Walk Park is located at 651 2nd Street, West Sacramento, and this where the celebrations will take place from 11:00 am – 7:00 pm this Saturday, September 29.
